Ilex Aquifolium

Ilex Aquifolium

Only the lower leaves of a holly tree are prickly, to deter hungry predators. To make this paper we have used spiny leaves around the edge and smoother ones for the middle. It has taken us four years to perfect this piece and it was shown in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016.
